An 11-year-old leopard is believed to have been killed by an Asiatic lion in the Semredi area of the Dalkhania range of the Gir forest in Amreli district few days ago, a senior official said today.

"The carcass was recovered yesterday," Deputy Conservator of Forest (Dhari West) Anshuman Sharma told PTI today evening.

Sharma suspected infighting between the lion and the leopard to be reason for the leopard's death.

The post-mortem report has confirmed the cause of death, Sharma said, adding that lions are known to kill leopards in territorial fights.
